Now she wants me to make over my diet even more. The official name of the diet is the "IFM CARDIOMETABOLIC FOOD PLAN."
|From the cover of the "Comprehensive Guide for the IFM Cardiometabolic Food Plan."|
She said it's really quite a bit like the paleo diet. I do have to cut back sugar almost entirely, and fruits to no more than two a day. My poor sweet tooth is going to feel awfully deprived until I get used to it. And my poor husband has to deal with all this as I adapt to one food change after another. This is a crazy journey.
In addition to the heart issues, my cortisol levels are not dropping in the evening like they should, which is why I can't fall asleep at night, so I've got a new supplement that may help with that. If I can start getting decent rest, that should help me regain my energy. I'll let you know...
